New Year New Stash

Wishing each and every one of you a Happy New Year.

Wow January – can you believe it!!!!

Feeling so refreshed and raring to go after having such a fabulous Christmas break with all the family.  Can’t wait to hop around all your blogs to see the fabulous makes I have been missing.

Let’s go then and what better way to start this post than to show my first make of the year which is for …  Vintage Stamping Challenges

Their first challenge of 2016 is something very simple … Anything Goes With Your New Stash.

My new stash are some background stamps which I purchased real cheap over the Christmas period.

Winter is well and truly here with us so to give myself a real feel of warmth I made this card with some very vibrant colours.

Cut a circle aperture in the front before adding a clock die.  When opened the inside of the card looks like this.


Toyed with adding numbers around the edge but I thought it might look t0o busy.  All the inks used are from Stampin Up.

Added a stamped painter image which you can find here from Flonz’s store.


I really hope that you can join us for this month’s challenge.  To enter just click Mr Linky at the bottom of the VSC web page and maybe it could be you who wins the $20 from Flonz’s store.

Please visit the DT’s blogs for more inspiration and also it would be nice to leave them some love.

    Happy New Year Shirley, it’s good to hear that you’ve enjoyed your Christmas break. I absolutely love this card. The vibrant colours are just perfect for this time of year when everywhere around us is so grey. I like the way that you’ve made different colour segments, it looks fabulous and the image of the painter just finishes it off perfectly. I have a birthday in a couple of weeks and the clock die is on my wish list! Have a lovely weekend. Sandra X

    Ooh this is really a beautiful card Shirl, with a great design and colours! And the wonderful lady painting was the perfect stamp to use!!!
    I think that if you give me the permission, I could maybe enter in the VSC challege with my last set of cards?… Indeed I used one stamp just bought and received onto them 🙂
    And one of my new resolutions is to participate more to VSC / FSC challenges this year! 😀
    All my very best wishes to you and yours Shirl for 2016.
    Hugs, Coco xxx
